Courtesy of the blog Puck Daddy comes this little promotion that I would seriously like to see the Houston Aeros marketing people to think about.
The Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL are having an Over 18 Night with a later starting time and an open bar for $20. But that's not what has got me excited. It's that they're doing a Stripper 101 thing on the concourse featuring performers from some Vegas show -- no nudity, unfortunately.
I don't know about you, but I'm sick of hearing kids choirs singing "God Bless America" during the intermission -- I seriously think Heather is going to go postal should they do that too many more times. I'm also tired of the chin-up competition, the sumo hockey, and just about everything else they do. It's time for the Aeros to do something a little different. And with all of the strip clubs and topless bars in Houston, I would think that if they were to do a stripper competition during the intermission, that they might be able to get not only a decent crowd, but some fantastic competitors. And since it's my understanding that the young ladies no longer strip in the clubs so that they can get around the SOB laws, they're probably used to just stripping down to a bra/bikini top and panties/bikini bottoms.
I mean, the Aeros usually get a big crowd for the Miss Aeros Bikini Contest. Just think of the crowds they would get for this. And instead of hiking the ticket prices, they could go with a high cover charge.
I'm just saying that this is something to think about.
